For years,pop stars and rap artists have proclaimed their love for 威廉希尔备用网址fashion designers in the lyrics of their songs,but forLady Gaga,it turns out a quick shout-out just wasn't enough.The title track off her new album,Artpop,is called "Donatella," and it has been described as a love letter to the platinum blondVersacedesigner.
你可以想象,Donatella is more than honored."I would like to thank Gaga for her geniality,creativity,incredible talent,and super bitchiness," she toldJustJared.com."I am honored to be her friend,and of course,I love the song!"
Their friendship began approximately two years ago,when Gaga wore a vintage Versace dress in her videoThe Edge of Glory."She was determined,she already knew what she wanted: to go straight to the heart of the maison and show those clothes to a new generation,to all her 威廉希尔备用网址fashion-lover fans," Versace toldWWD.She was talking about the brand's signature bondage-inspired dresses designed by her late brother,Gianni Versace."I'm sure that if Gianni were still alive he would have been a huge fan of hers."
Check out that dress in action,in Gaga's video.
Gaga understands why people are starting to compare her song to Jay-Z's "Tom Ford," but she said the two pieces are very different because he's talking about the 威廉希尔备用网址fashion brand and she's singing about Donatella,the person.I think she makes a fair point.Listen to "Tom Ford"and thencheck outthe lyrics (but I wouldn't look at them while at work.There are quite a few words in there you don't want your boss to see on your computer screen!) It's also true that Jay-Z loves a good 威廉希尔备用网址fashion name drop (he's rapped aboutBurberry,Maison Martin Margiela,Hermes,Manolo Blahnikin the past).
If you want to hear "Donatella" and the rest of Gaga'sArtpopalbum,you'll have to wait a little longer since it drops Nov.11.
